I planted CInsault to produce a light-bodied red as part of the Starfield wine portfolio. It’s ideal to serve during the warm summer months, and the perfumed aroma is absolutely amazing. There’s no other wine quite like it, and once people have tried it, I think they’ll always go back to it.
Spring is in the air!
So far this spring we’ve experienced some snow, torrential rains, and sunshine. With all of the weather variations, it is surprising that the vines are starting to leaf out and flowers are blooming. We may be partial, but it’s becoming quite beautiful here.
As the weather gets nicer, enjoy a glass of wine al fresco at the end of the day. We will be doing the same, thinking of you.
Could spring really be on the way?
Just when we thought spring was here, we got some snow which has halted the early rhododendron bloom. The weather hasn’t slowed our progress with our many projects though. Wishing you a happy spring and all of the celebrations this month brings.
An early spring?
We are delighted to see the signs of an early spring with daffodils and rhododendron beginning to bloom. The vines got their winter’s rest while we have been busy working around the property and in planning and designing the tasting room and winery buildings.
This month has lots of opportunity to celebrate. You might want to stock up on your favorite wine prior to Mardis Gras, Valentine’s Day and President’s Day celebrations.
Winter settles in
Winter has been mild so far which gives us time for vineyard maintenance while the vines slumber. Our attention turns to finalizing plans for the tasting room, winery and the access road through the property. With winter the pace slows down and we look forward to catching our breath and completing projects.
Finally, a Winter rest!
It’s hard to believe this year is nearly over. As we reflect back on everything that this year brought, we are truly grateful for you, our customers, our beautiful vineyards that are producing delicious wine, and seeing our vision for the property become a reality.
As you celebrate the holidays with friends and family, we invite you to take a moment to reflect on your blessings and we will do the same, as we raise a glass to you.
Barbera’s beautiful color, excellent acidity, and fruitiness makes it an ideal variety for the Sierra Foothills. With warm days and cool nights at Starfield, Barbera produces a medium-bodied, fruity red wine that’s terrific for everyday drinking. California’s best Barberas have historically come from Foothills vineyards, and we wanted to make sure we had this delicious wine in our portfolio.
Happy Fall. It’s been a busy month processing our second harvest, which is our largest to date. We can now turn our attention to wrapping construction efforts for the season and preparing the vineyards for a rest. We hope you will enjoy a beautiful bottle of wine to toast the season.
Final Push to Complete Harvest!
We started harvest the end of August and are in full swing. Picking grapes at the optimal ripeness is our focus, and the window is narrow between being ripe and over-ripe. After this crazy year, we also keep a wary eye on the weather which can impact the harvest. So far only 0.05 inches of rain -- which is great!Our other projects are delayed as we focus on picking grapes.
Hope you are enjoying the approach of Autumn, Do not forget the wine!
Gearing up for harvest!
We are just starting harvest! The Roussanne and our earliest block of Viognier are already in, and all our time and attention is focused on managing the vineyard to ensure we produce the best grapes for harvest this year. It all comes down to a few short weeks when the grapes are finally ripe and can be picked. Enjoy these last few weeks of summer!
